It does not work on my 11.2 opensuse ; no windowed mode…

What’s your graphics card?

Addendum:

Are you trying to play cricket with a baseball bat?

Its possible openSUSE11.2 is not now officially supported.
ATI Catalyst 11.11 is compiled again GCC4.6, so if I’m not mistaken, its
possible unless use have that compiler on your system Catalyst will not install
correctly.

Have you thought of upgrading.

finally works, but I have no idea why.

Well done!

Many times things seem not to have a logic.

It is supported - the 11.11 release is in the ATI repository for 12.1. :slight_smile:

ATI Catalyst 11.11 worked for me on openSUSE11.4 and openSUSE12.1.
I had no confidence that it would work in “11.2 opensuse”.

Ah, my mistake - I had apparently read something that wasn’t there.

I only wish supported meant we’re eligible for some kind of support other than than usual troubleshooting that only verifies that this should NOT be supported in 12.1, as it is not stable. There blog doesn’t state when 11.12 comes out, does anyone have a way of finding that out or what changes are being made?

do you watch the following urls in Akregator for updates?

ATI Proprietary Linux Driver Releases

No as the linux feed hasnt been updated in a year, and the Windows feed only gives a hint that a new release will be out soon. At any rate thank you for reminding me to check, I see a new release came out today.

Downloading 11.12 now. You can watch rss here for Windows. Linux version is always out right after. ATI Catalyst
